Kid Cudi Honors Orlando Shooting Victims In “Stop The Hate” Campaign
Kid Cudi and a roster of entertainers have joined forces with the Human Rights Campaign to foster awareness on the rights and those who lost their lives during the Orlando nightclub shooting.
With Friday (Aug. 12) marking the two-month anniversary of the tragedy, Cudi along with LGBTQ advocators and actors Guillermo Diaz, Anna Paquin, Kathy Bates, Darren Criss, Lavene Cox and Lee Daniels, shared the stories of the victims in special clips shared through social media. Cudi narrated the life of Paul Terrell Henry who was survived by his boyfriend Francisco Hernandez and two children.
The June 12 incident left 49 people dead and wounded 53 more at Pulse nightclub by gunman Omar Mateen, making it the worse mass shooting in American history. On the day of the shooting, Cudi took to Twitter to condemn the treatment of LGBTQ people in the hip-hop community. “The Hip Hop community is the least outspoken about gay rights and Ima go out my way to change that,” Cudi tweeted.
